Wait a second... Where are all the guys who were saying Columbo sucks to us Cowboys fans? Where are all the guys giving us a Tackle in their mock drafts? Where are all the guys who kept saying Cowboys fans are delusional for thinking that Columbo is more than just an average guy?
It's not a huge loss as some Cowboys fans may lead you to believe. Yes, he played better than we expected last year. However, he is far from proven. He had one solid year in a contract year btw and is nothing more than a one year wonder with injury concerns. Bears fans can at least atone for that. His play is also hard to guage by the numbers because we ran the 2 TE set as our base offense and more frequently than not, Columbo had the help of our TEs in pass protection. ...and nobody should get fooled that he's a mauler in the run game.... Please see a doctor if that's the case.
There are still other options unlike Guard out there that the Cowboys or any other team looking for a Tackle can find. Columbo is just another guy. Jordan Black, Petigout, Pork Chop Womack, Max Starks, Mike Gandy, Damion McIntosh, Anthony Clement and more... even old guys that could be carry overs like Todd Steussie and Ephraim Salaam are still available.
